EXCLUSIVE: Coming off a triumphant Hall H debut at San Diego Comic-Con this summer, the Star Trek Universe now is set to engage with the Big Apple at New York Comic Con next month.
With Sonequa Martin-Green, Sir Patrick Stewart and Trekverse kingpin and executive producer Alex Kurtzman at the helm, both Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard will be appearing October 5 at the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden, I have learned.
Similar to the extravaganza at SDCC, the NYCC panel will run as a two-headed Federation experience from 1-2:30 p.m. on the penultimate day of the confab. Along with the respective leads and EP Kurtzman, Discovery’s Doug Jones, Mary Wiseman, Anthony Rapp, Wilson Cruz and David Ajala are expected onstage to deep dive into the upcoming third season of the CBS All Access series.
Also, the 2020-debuting Picard’s Alison Pill, Isa Briones, Michelle Hurd, Santiago Cabrera, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora will be joining the knight of the realm known onscreen as the Next Generation captain at what surely will be a packed Hulu Theater.
The Trekverse will not be the only CBS Studios entities at NYCC this year.
Nancy Drew, the September 26-debuting Evil, the returning Tell Me a Story and NYCC alum Charmed also will have Javits Center panels at the October 3-6 gathering.
